> What problem do you have in mind that the fork server would solve?

My understanding is that the fork server solves the *general* problem of running arbitrary code before fork by making sure that only CPython/multiprocessing gets to run code before fork.

In this specific case where you're carefully running only forkable code at startup, it presumably won't help.
